Abstract

In the last years, the increasing use of social networks and applications has significantly changed the business processes in many organizations. These applications provide new cooperative ways of performing these processes by taking advantages of the interactions among users. However, the high number of these applications has lead to a lack of automation in their interactions and, thus, the need of manually connecting to these networks to perform recurrent and repetitive tasks. In order to automate these operations, this paper presents SCPL, a Domain Specific Language (DSL) that enables the connectivity among different social networks and applications and provides a way to automate their management. The main contribution of this paper is showing how SCPL can be used to specify collaborative tasks using social networks in a transparent way.
